Pay It Foward Crew

Pay It Forward Work Day 189Bryn Athyn Church has coordinated a new effort to connect people in times of need with people who want to help out and offer support. We are calling it the Pay It Forward Crew.

It is composed of community volunteers – a network of men and women, young and old, who love to help out in a practical way for people during times of need or struggle. We will connect those who want to serve, with people who need support when dealing with illness, financial struggle, single parenting, a new baby, etc. Possibilities are helping with things like moving, home repair, yard work, domestic support (cleaning, shopping, laundry, meals), etc. We picture people coming out to serve individually, in small groups, with their family, etc. – whatever is right for the job.

By getting your name on our list, it does not mean you will be committing to every project. We hope to have a long list of people who could occasionally help out, whenever it works in their lives.  It’s helpful to know if you have specific interests, skills and/or tools to bring to use.

This coming month we are hoping to help a family with some home and yard de-cluttering, repairs and major cleaning.  They live 45 minutes away, so we hope to gather several people for a five-hour (which includes travel time) work party someday soon.  If this calls to you, please contact Nina Dewees.

Watch the Post and BA Church Facebook page for more information and opportunities as things develop.  Please contact Nina Dewees 215-947-6225 ext 206 or Bronwen Henry 215-530-2036 to join the network of neighbors and/or learn more
